Further Praise of Arkansas'Record Railroad Magazine Article Commends 1931 Live- "Arkansas has 'come back,' and how!" is the opening sentence of an article in the current issue, of the Rock Island magazine, accompanied by an entire page of illustrations showing a canning kitchen, stores of canned foods and fruits and scenes of the. abundant harvests in the state last year. A statement from Senator Robinson, commenting on the great improvements in conditions in the state, also is featured. Much credit for the recovery is given the state Agricultural Extension Service for its sponsorship of the Uve-at-home program. The "rapid transition from a food shortage area to one of abundance is not the result of accident or chance happening, but is the result of a cardful, well-laid plan in food and feed production, preservation and utilization, developed and carried out by the county and home demonstration agents of* the University of Arkansas, College of Agriculture," the article says. "Last fall there was a big campaign for the planting of fall grains and gardens and it was followed by campaigns for early feed and food crops. This program is more familiarly known in Arkansas as the live-at-home program," Quotes Senator Robinson Senator Joe T. Tlobinson was quoted as follows: "There has been a ro- markable improvement of conditions in the state of Arkansas. Nineteen thirty brought a severe drouth resulting in the failure of staple vegetable and fruit crops. Accustomed to abundant yields, the people were poorly prepared for the disaster. During 1931 the conditions have been almost completely reversed. There is more than an adequate supply of all essentials. The barns are filled with hay. Large quantities of fruits and vegetables have been canned. , Cotton,. corn and rice crops have exceeded production in any .previous year of the state's history. The low price of products and the hangover of debt from previous seasons constitute impediments to prosperity, but these are nationwide in their effects." The fod crop harvested this year ih the state was valued at approximately ?35,000,000, it was said. "Practically all the 242,000 farms in Arkansas were equipped this year with some sort of vegetable garden," the article continued. "The extensiveness of gardening in Arkansas the past year is reflected in the tremendous quantities of garden and home orchard products canned. A recent survey shows that approximately 36.000,000 quarts of fruits and vegetables were canned and are taxing the storage capacity of the cellars and pantires of the farm homes. The drouth of 1930 has taught the farmers to take advantage of nature's abundance by storing away for possible future emergencies. "Wholesalers in Arkansas report an unprecerented sale of canning equipment. Five Little Rock wholesalers. recently reported that more than 125 carloads of glass jars have been sold in that district. In the Pine Bluff district. 50 carloads of fruit jars, 10 carloads of tin cans, five carloads of jar tops and four carloads, of jar rubbers have been sold.'
